Weather maps show exact time ‘final hot spell of year’ will hit UK this weekend

Brits basked in scorching heatwave conditions last week as temperatures exceeded 30C for seven consecutive days.

The hottest day of the year came on Saturday (September 9) as 33.2C was recorded in Kew Gardens – but sadly the weather has since deteriorated.

The Met Office expects temperatures to hover in and around the low-20Cs in the south of the country today (Wednesday, September 12). Further north and in Scotland and Northern Ireland, temperatures will struggle to exceed 16C.

Thankfully, advanced weather maps from WX Charts show the warmth should return briefly this weekend.

On Saturday (September 16) the mercury is expected to hit a balmy 28C on the south coast from 3pm to 6pm. Southern-central regions including London can expect 26C or 27C.

Things will be cooler further north with 25C expected in the Midlands and low-20Cs in the north of England.

Sadly for people in Northern Ireland and Scotland, this weekend is expected to be rather cold . Northern Ireland will see highs of just 12C on Saturday and some parts of Scotland might not even get into double figures.

The Met Office said conditions will be "turning warmer and humid again in the southeast on Saturday". However, similarly to this weekend just gone, the national weather agency added there will be a "risk of thunderstorms".

Thunderstorms could also come on Sunday (September 17). The Met Office said: "Relatively dry, bright and cool conditions are expected in the north on Sunday, but southern and central regions are more likely to be more humid with outbreaks of showers, and a possibility of thunderstorms at times.

"However, confidence is low, especially as to where the boundary between these conditions will be."

Saturday could be the last time for a while we get hot conditions in the UK. Jim Dale, the Senior Meteorological Consultant at British Weather Services, said during last week's heatwave: "We’re starting to run out of time in terms of the Sun's power.

"Very warm [conditions] can still come back on an occasional basis but to be honest, this could well be it for a few months. I think that’s about it for us."
